Is M12 Alpha?

Thursday December 2nd, 1999

That's what the mozilla developers would like to know. If you're a member of mozillaZine, you can participate in a survey to help gauge our readers' feelings regarding the current pre-M12 builds. If you're not a member, it's easy to become one (and free, too). Just visit our members page and follow the instructions.

Then, visit the survey page, and answer all the questions. You will need to be a member to see the survey results, and you cannot see the results until after you have voted.

If you don't have a current pre-M12 build, you can grab the latest nightly build from our builds page.

If you have tried the builds, but haven't tried things like mail or news, please vote 10 for those questions pertaining to email or newsgroup usage.


#81 almost there...

I downloaded the 12/14/99 Windows build and found it to be very fast. I conducted a some speed "benchmarks" between Mozilla and IE5 and found Mozilla as fast, near as fast, or faster than IE in every case. In no case did the performance lag significantly behind IE. Not bad for a pre-Alpha. So let's just go ahead and make it official! The Linux builds I downloaded a few days ago had some stability problems though...hopefully this will be solved soon. By the way, where's autocomplete (in typing URLs)? I read months ago that the developers were working on it, but we haven't seen the fruits of their labor on that yet...
